Constant pain in stomach, taken Enema feel stomach region tender. Is it a general constipation?

I was having stomach pain since Sunday, was a dull constant pain, when I realized I hadn t had a bm for at least 4 days. Last night the pain got so nagging that I used an enema. I used less than 1/2 of the recommended dose b/c I think I might be very early pregnant. I was able to expel only a very small amount (other than the enema liquid itself) and felt a bit better after but this morning my stomach region is very very very tender. Does this all point to general constipation?

Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

Lack of a natural bowel movement for 4 days or more is not a sign to ignore. It is best to visit your doctor at the earliest and diagnose or rule out all possible causes of constipation before assuming it to pregnancy-related constipation (as it is too early for constipation to present, even if you are pregnant).

An erect and supine abdominal x-ray should help in initial diagnosis. Please visit your doctor at the earliest. Please also discuss all details about your diet and your digestive history.

I hope I have succeeded in answering your questions, you could write back to me anytime for further clarifications.

Best wishes.
